, how do i best describe what is that makes america great and the constitutional conservative principles that i believe need to be embodied in the next president of the united states. i went back to 1997 when i was a freshman in the united states senate. i would read everything. it took me three years for me to figure out i did not need to read all of that. i also thought i should read the code of iowa. i came to the education chapter in the code of iowa. i was reading through there and it said, each child in iowa shall receive a global not- sexist, multi-cultural education. that means all of the schools in the state would have to teach multiculturalism. i have never been a fan of any of those things. [applause] i took out a bill draft request form to write a bill to strike all of that language out of there. i would get that drafted and get it filed. i thought, if i just strike the language out that calls for the global, non-sexist multiculturalism. but i thought people would think i did not believe in everything. i wrote a bill to replace it. strike up the language about global non-sexi

or what combination of sources will actually turn out to be best for america. and that should be cause for those of us here in congress to be extraordinarily careful in trying to predetermine what sources should either win or lose. we're always talking around here about we need to steer clear of picking winners and losers, and yet that seems that's what we do all the time. a diversity of energy sources provides the best proving ground and insurance against overreliance on any one source and a healthy economy provides the best demand for the cleanest sources available. winston churchill once said, "on no one quality, on no one process, on no one country, on no one route and on no one field must we be depend hent. safety and certainty in oil lie in variety and variety alone. now, winston churchill was talking about oil but his words are just as applicable to our need for diversity in all of our types of energy. now, finally, the need to make our energy domestic to the greatest degree possible is something that we've all known. we all know that we need to do this, but we have failed to do
